It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the Winter/Spring installation of LEADDD Reads.

As most of you know, there has been considerable discussion and debate surrounding the book, "American Dirt", and its author Jeanine Cummins.  We learned have learned that due to concerns for her personal safety, the publisher has canceled her book tour, including her interview with Vivien Jennings, Rhodes, owner and founder of LEADDD Reads partner, Rainy Day Books. Vivien’s exclusive author interviews are a key piece of the LEADDD Reads experience. We regret that we will not be able to offer this experience to our members.    

As an assembly of brave, bold and kind women, Tri Delta has a long history of engaging in crucial conversations on the toughest of topics. To that end, we are grateful to have Tri Delta’s Past President and chair of the Fort Worth Library Advisory Board, Phyllis Grissom, Southern Methodist, facilitate a discussion around "American Dirt" and the important issues it has raised.  We know her thoughtful approach and passion for books will elevate this conversation for insight, learning and growth for all who participate. The discussion group will take place in a private Facebook group. To join the group, please click here
